Beyonce, Rihanna, & More Celebs Share '23 Ways You Could Be Killed if You Are Black in America'

Beyonce, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Chris Rock, and many more are coming together to reveal 23 ways that you could be killed if you are black in America in this new video produced by Mic.

Some of the actions include “falling to signal a lane change,” “riding in your girlfriend’s car with a child in the back,” “selling cigarettes outside of a corner store,” “riding a commuter train,” “walking home with a friend,” and more.

“Go to WeAreHereMovement.com to tell President Obama and Congress that the time for change is now. We demand radical transformation to heal the long history of systemic racism so that all Americans have the equal right to live and to pursue happiness,” Alicia says at the end of the video.

The PSA was produced after the tragic shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile a week ago.

Queen Latifah, Eve and Amber Rose strike a pose on the pink carpet while attending the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens held at the David Geffen Hall on Monday (July 11) in New York City.

The three ladies were joined at the event by Keke Palmer, Orange Is The New Black stars Dascha Polanco, Lea DeLaria and Emma Myles, as well as models Chanel Iman and Winnie Harlow, LaLa Anthony, Laura Michelle Kelly and Power star Lela Loren.

“Listen, we all know our world is really tense right now,” Queen expressed during her honoree speech. “I’m hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way, and really do something to change our world. I don’t care how much or things I have, or Puff has, or Missy has… If I go outside and try to hail a cab and he passes me for the white woman standing right there, that racism is still alive and kicking. And we have to change that. I’m not blaming the white lady, she needed a cab too. I’m just saying we need to change this attitude.”

The next morning (July 8), Queen stopped by The Today Show to promote the flick and comment on the Dallas police shooting.

“It’s terrible, but we have to get real about it,” Queen expressed. “If we get real about it, we can deal with it. But if we want to act like, ‘Oh no, that’s their problem,’ and ‘This only happens here.’ No, it’s happening to all of us.”

“I’m Queen Latifah, but I’m black wherever I go,” Queen added. “I deal with the same experiences that other people deal with. I’m also the daughter of a cop, I’m also the sister of a cop, the cousin of a cop and the niece of cops. I don’t want the guns turned on police any more than I want the guns turned on us.”
